So, I dont have aquarium light bulbs. I did have two, but they blew within two days of each other, and that was about two weeks ago.
I found that regular 40 watt or 60 watt light bulbs dont fit in to the bulb slot, but that the energy saver spiral bulbs do. So now, I have two 13 watt bulbs for my tank.
Is this too much light? Should i go and get aquarium bulbs? Should i maybe only use one?
My tank is relatively new, as I just got the appropriate filter, [long story] and totally re did my tank.
I know the water is supposed to be a bit cloudy the first few weeks, as its been, but today, the water has taken on a greenish hue. The only real plant i have in there are marimo balls, recently ripped.
Ive had tanks totally over come with algea, I want to avoid that.
Could this green hue be the water maturing?
